Build the bundle you want.. and save on the accessories!
11 months ago

On Friday, GearShop launched a new promotion that we think you'll really love. We've all bought those prepackaged bundles that other camera stores and big box stores create for you, making assumptions about what kind of "free" extras you want with your new camera or lens. You spend big money on a new piece of hardware and end up with a bunch of cheap filters, batteries, or cleaning products that just collect dust or end up in the trash.

We're challenging that by allowing you to use a percentage of your hardware purchase (5%) to pick out the accessories that you actually want -- a new tripod, camera bag, battery, high quality filter, or a memory card... Or maybe you want to get something to experiment with, like a plastic Holga lens for your DSLR. It's up to you what you want to spend it on, but remember that you can only use the discount at the same time as your hardware purchase.

Here are a couple of examples of how it works:

  1. You add a camera to your cart that costs $1449.
  2. 5% of $1449 is $72.45.
  3. You add a camera bag to your cart that costs $79.95.
  4. As you proceed to checkout and land on the "Review and Place Order" screen, you'll automatically see your discount listed as a “Bundle Savings” line item. You only paid the difference of $7.50 for your new bag!

OR

  1. Add a lens to your cart that costs $779.99
  2. 5% of $779.99 is $40.00
  3. Add a lens pouch for $27.47 and a UV filter for $8.75
  4. Both accessories total up to $36.22, which means you get them for free.
  5. As you proceed to checkout and land on the "Review and Place Order" screen, you'll automatically see your $36.22 discount as a “Bundle Savings” line item. (The unused $3.78 is lost, unless you add more items to this transaction.)

You can also buy multiple cameras and lenses on the same transaction and collect the 5% discount from all of those hardware items.

Let us know what you think by commenting here. As always, you can contact me or Customer Service with questions. Terms and conditions are here and some restrictions apply. All cameras and lenses that we sell are eligible, but some accessories are excluded.
